The good and bad of global recycling

Soon I’ll be reviewing Adam Minter’s new book Junkyard Planet for Science Book a Day – just waiting for that parcel in the mail! George Aranda has already posted a synopsis and book trailer – they’re new thing, have you noticed?

George has also interviewed Adam, whose family actually owned a junkyard – here is the interview.
